29 Nov 2010: Months of Crazy

The Bedtime Shuffle

From the day he was born, Kai has always had problems going to sleep. As soon as you'd leave the room, he'd start screaming at the top of his voice. In recent months, his screaming would usually stop after 10-15 minutes and he would go off to sleep.

But for a few weeks now, Kai has gone to sleep without screaming at all. The big change seemed to be introducing his own pillow and duvet. He seemed more comfortable, more protected. Perhaps he felt more grown-up, because he knows Mum and Dad have the same thing. Whatever the reason, Kai's bedtime crying stopped almost overnight.
